Another super-secret project. I'm looking to finish this army for our upcoming local tournament. We'll see how far I get, things are mostly built as of today. I need to finish some Defiler conversions at some point and do some putty work on these knights.



To add some variety I did some leg swapping and combining on the Hell-Knights and Hell-Scourges. I also swapped the weapons as well to add to the chaotic vibe.





The Questors saw the most conversion, with scratch built Castigator cannons and battlecannon swaps to make them WYSIWYG.



Finally, the Subjugators got some leg swaps as well. I found the Questor legs to be a bit too short so I added risers to the feet to beef them up. Up next is the puttying and priming.

Building and conversion is done aside from the Debaser, so I'm testing out my scheme on a Hell-Strider. I'm undecided on the yellow but happy enough with the rest. No metal yet, but most if not all the black stuff will be silver or bronze in the end.

Looking good - will be very impressive once all painted.

I love the idea of starting a whole new army for a comp!

Thanks guys.

Good progress this week, the magenta is done and all but size of the knights have their black done. I decided to call it quits for tonight after knocking over my bottle of Black Templar. No models took a hit, but my hands are stained real nice now.



The Hell-Scourge in the front there is furthest along. It just needs the metal colors at this point. I picked up some flourscent AK Interactive paints for this project, I'm underwhelmed but them. Their coverage is horrible. My bottle of Vallejo Mecha Magenta isn't great but it's still better than these, plus it's airbrush ready.

Really cool project! Must have set you back quite a bit too, with all of those OOP metals. Then again; they did look suspiciously shiny in the bare metal... ;)

The scheme is delightfully Slaaneshi of course and I like the use of the ultra bright fluorescents.

I have a couple of fluorescent vallejo paints and mine too cover terribly; many coats are usually required for an even result. But the spectacle they provide when lit by a UV light is nothing short of spectacular 8)
Miniatures you say? Well I too, like to live dangerously...

They look great.  Can't wait to see them in action on the table.

Are you planning on picking up the new Epic set when it comes out?

Thanks for the heads up about the coverage on the paint too, that helps.

Thanks guys.

@Daeothar, the army was actually a gift from a guy who used to play with us. I've had them in a box for 5+ years now, and started slapping them together on a whim at the start of May.

@Pictors, if they were in scale with what I have I could see my way to picking up a box to support the local store. If it's AT scale then no. I've got an army and a half of painted marines, and other 3 in storage. I can't see 8mm marines getting paint at all.

Has it actually been confirmed though? All I've seen is a hokey Adobe Flash looking video with boxes moving around.

Making progress on the secondary colors. There's one more leader to paint, I think I'm going to go tiger stripes for it. The others got zebra and leopard print. After that I need to block out some black, paint the pink icons, the metal bits and then the bases.

I didn't quite get as far as I hoped but these are done enough for NEAT. They need some gloss and dullcotes, and their flocking and tufts, but otherwise they're good enough to bring the pain this Saturday.



I also might add some heat destoration to the weapons, if I can find a technique I like.





After that, it's on to the scout Titans, and the rest.

Beautiful! These bring back memories of my own foray into EPIC a decade ago. I hope adding them to your thread is acceptable.

Thanks Fred.

They look great, Helge. Those Questors and Subjugators are next on my list, and I plan to convert a Ravisher (Reaver) and Painlord (Warlord) as well.

I topcoated the Slaanesh knights this week, then added some flock and a few alien tufts. They're done for real this time.









I working on converting some Debasers (Slaanesh Defilers) as well as some infantry and other titans.

Truly great work. Almost makes me want to buy another Epic army. Almost... :)

That debaser looks great!

Are you going to be getting the new Epic set when it comes out?
